APPLE CAKE, any way you slice it, is delicious! I remembered using an easy recipe once, that required a box of angel food cake mix and a can of crushed pineapples, that’s it! I thought, why not try this same technique with other fruit fillings as well? Here are my results…..this is one of the easiest cakes I have ever made! It’s definitely going to have a place in my most cherished recipes cookbook. Chuck full of apples with that hint of cinnamon, it screams FALL any way you slice it! Perfect for the holidays and Fall weather, my favorite time of the year. If you’re in a pinch and need to come up with a quick and tasty treat for the holidays, give this one a try…..
My brain is spinning, wanting to experiment with pumpkin filling now, Hmm? Stay tuned!
1 (16 oz.) pkg. Angel Food cake mix
1 (21 oz.) can Apple Pie filling
1/2 tsp. ground Cinnamon
3 Tbsp. Water
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9×13-inch baking dish, set this aside. In a large bowl, pour the dry cake mix. Add the ground Cinnamon and stir to combine well.
NOTE: According to the cake mix package, it says not to grease the baking dish; I was concerned about the apple filling sticking to the pan, so I LIGHTLY sprayed mine with Baker’s Joy. This is optional to you….
Pour in the can of apple pie filling and the water.
Using a rubber spatula, HAND-stir these ingredients together. Do not use a mixer, otherwise you’ll end up breaking the chunky pieces of apple.
NOTE: You can cut the apples before adding them to the mix, for better distribution throughout the cake.
Stir these ingredients all together until a thick batter forms. Pour this into a lightly greased 9×13-inch baking pan.
Spread the batter out on the baking pan, making sure the apples have been distributed evenly throughout. Place into the preheated oven and bake for the required time listed on your package directions or until golden and cake tester comes out clean.
